As part of the process, UK2Learn underwent a thorough inspection to ensure best practice in all areas of guardianship.Learn said, “We are extremely proud to have received AEGIS accreditation. UK2Learn Guardianship aims to deliver a service that cares for every aspect of an overseas student’s stay in the UK. This is another great achievement for the UK2Learn team, and testament to our dedication to guardianship services.”
A spokesperson from AEGIS said, “UK2Learn is a family business, which provides a highly personal service to students and their parents, and which is valued equally by parents, students and schools. It combines efficiency and high levels of care extremely well.”
Immersion students take to the Radio Waves!
One week into their Immersion Programme at the Wellington Academy, UK2Learn’s group of Russian and Ukrainian students produced and presented their own radio show on Castledown Radio, 104.7FM. www.castledownradio.info
Each student took turns to speak for a short while about their experiences in England so far and then introduced their favourite song of the moment. There were plenty of nerves on the day but the excitement of knowing their parents were able to listen online was great!
